DC Cinematic Universe (DCU) Films: Screenplays Download

DC Comics was the first out of the gate with 1979’s Classic Superman and 1989’s Batman. Both films established DC as the king of comic book movies. On the other side of the tracks, Marvel was bumbling around for decades never getting anywhere with their adaptations. As we now know the Marvel Cinematic Universe (read those scripts here) is the most profitable movie franchise in Hollywood history while DC Comics is having a hard time catching up.

DC Comics has made some amazing adaptations, Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy comes to mind, and there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel for them. Take a read of the long history of produced and un-produced screenplays based on DC Comics.

The screenplays below are the only ones that are available online. If you find any of his missing screenplays please leave the link int he comment section.
